Almay Wake-Up Makeup

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

If you have dry skin you may shun powders. But Almay’s Wake-Up Makeup is a powder that is ironically hydrating. This mineral foundation uses technology to infuse encapsulated water in loose powder. The formula also contains cucumber, minerals, aloe vera, and green tea extracts to condition the skin. Best of all, this formula is talc-free, so your pores will be safe. We loved the feel of this powder (it has a cooling sensation upon application) and found it to be very similar to Revlon’s Color Stay Aqua Mineral Makeup. If you’re trying to decide between the two we would say choose Almay if you have sensitive or dry skin; and choose Revlon if oily skin is a concern and you want more staying power.

Almay One Coat Get Up & Grow Mascara

Monday, April 11th, 2011

You can always count on Almay to make good mascara. Their latest, One Coat Get Up & Grow has an anti-breakage formula with vitamins which improves lashes with each use. As the name implies, one coat is actually enough to get bold looking lashes, which is a great time saver. However, this is not a formula that easily washes off with soap and water so you’ll definitely need a good makeup remover.

Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Concealer

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Instead of just covering your crow’s feet with makeup, you can treat your skin at the same time with Almay’s Smart Shade Anti-Aging Concealer. It moisturizes your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, depuffs your eyes, and it has an SPF of 20 to reduce further damage. This product comes in light, medium, and dark and it transforms into your ideal shade upon application. What we loved the most is that we got a perfect concealer color and our eyes looked smooth. However, even though the product is hypoallergenic we felt a little bit of sting while using it. Maybe it was the ingredients that depuff? This concealer is great if you’re looking to combat aging and smooth your skin. But if you have dark under eye circles it may not be enough coverage – this concealer provides light to medium coverage.

Almay Intense I-Color Smoky-I Kit

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Almay has a line of eyeshadow kits that are designed to flatter your natural eye color. We tried the kit for brown eyes and didn’t think the purple shade (for the crease) would look good at all. However, if applied with a light hand it looked great. These kits are made for the smoky eye look, so if you want to go for a day time look don’t go any farther than your crease with the darkest shade. By the way, these eyeshadows are hypoallergenic as well as talc and paraben free!

Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Many foundations are great at hiding wrinkles, but as the day progresses the foundation starts to settle in fine lines and wrinkles, which does more emphasizing than hiding. A great alternative is Almay’s Smart Shade Anti-Aging Makeup. This is a sheer to medium coverage foundation that not only won’t settle in fine lines, it actually improves their appearance. We liked the matte finish of this foundation and the lightweight feel. The product goes on white, and then transforms to a shade that matches your skin tone. Women who need darker shades may be disappointed, this product only comes in Light, Light Medium, and Medium. Also, we don’t recommend this product if you like full coverage.
